Exceptions to the Closing Date Report

  • Updated

Once a period is closed, users are not able to record and submit treatments or post payments for any activities that occurred during that closed period. If any changes or adjustments need to be made to a closed period, it is necessary to first reopen the period. The Exceptions to the Closing Date Report provides an audit history of the Period Closed feature, allowing organizations to review any changes made. This report provides valuable insight into the history of closed periods.
